GYPSET: Coffee Table Book of the Week

Gypset Books and Lifestyle

I bought the Gypset Collection of Books and it’s been a wonderful Coffee Table book accessory. Gypset Books and Lifestyle is a daily inspiration and reminder of the Ideal Life I have set out. We oftentimes get so carried away with our day-to-day activities, that life becomes easily mundane. We all need some sort of consistency. Most need some income to support our life.

That vision or dream of globetrotting gets many of us going. It motivates me at work and the focus shifts forward to that bigger picture. Whether one is abroad gypset’ing or even at home, wanderlusting is a Lifestyle.

My main style of traveling has been backpacking. Though I do find myself enjoying the luxurious side of traveling once in awhile with posh hotels abroad and fine dining. The girly-girl in me comes out while roaming the bazaars in Istanbul, shopping the Mapusa Flea market in Goa (India) or the massive streets of Hong Kong. Global Fashion, to me, never fades.

Kindred Spirits, Free-Spirited Souls

Forming familial bonds with other travelers while on the road is common. This book contains a collection of all those interests many of us have, with beautiful photos to gaze at over and over again. From fashion, to creative housing, to locations and Lifestyles. It contains dozens of stories of individuals and families through the past century who have given up their ‘normal’ life and gyp-set’ed abroad to some remote location, off the beaten tracks.

“They are people I’ve met–or been inspired by– in my travels who have perfected a high-low approach to life that fuses the freelance and nomadic wile of a gypsy with the sophistication and global references of the jet set. Its an alternative way of traveling and living that’s based more on creativity then money. Instead of a luxury hotel in St Tropez or St. Bart’s, you might find a Gypsetter in Montauk, Cornwall, or in a teepee in Ibiza.

The book features photo portraits of the Gypsetters, their self-designed homes in far flung bohemian enclaves, and a written profile. There’s also a historic section that traces the evolution of the Gypset movement; from the British romantic poets, Victorian era adventuresses, surrealists in Mexico, 
beats, backpackers, and trust fund hippies.”
